I would never have imagined that wild garlic would make for a particularly photogenic plant. What I present to you here, however, is a carpet of wild flowers in a nearby wood, all of them garlic.

Wild flowers I spotted while on a nature walk with Izzy. Each one of them is wild garlic.

I took this photo one afternoon last week while on a nature walk with Izzy, my youngest daughter. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never seen wild garlic grow in quite such large quantities!

Noticing the occasional bluebell growing in among the wild garlic, I couldn’t help taking another couple of images. The image below shows one of the bluebells, in among the garlic. I think it looks quite intrepid and contrasts well with the white of the garlic. What do you think?

    1. Yes, I know what you mean. The smell can be overpowering but wild garlic is surprisingly photogenic.

  1. Wow, John, what an amazing sight. Like you, I’ve never seen as much as this in one spot. It’s like a carpet. Love the single bluebell against the white too. What a treat! #MySundayPhoto

    1. Ah, I’m glad you picked up on the light in the first picture. I wasn’t sure if that added to the picture or took something away truth be told.

    1. Glad you like it. The sheer quantity of wild garlic just made this stand out. The pic had to be taken!

  2. That is a lot of garlic, I do feel kind of sorry for the poor Bluebell, perhaps the others refused to grow because of the smell hehe.

    1. You may have a point! Maybe this particular bluebell couldn’t smell for some reason? or maybe its scared of vampires and just eminently sensible?

  3. Beautiful photographs. I see a lot of bluebells in the woods near me but never the wild garlic. They obviously don’t get along!

    1. Yeah, they do make for strange friends it has to be said. That said, they;ve very photogrnic whenmixed in with each other.

    Wow – what beautiful captures. I’ve definitely never seen wild garlic growing in such large quantities, but it certainly makes a wonderful blanket. #MySundayPhoto

  5. Hi John, we do get garlic growing wild here, but I’ve never seen a carpet of it. The bluebell does stand out against the paler flowers nicely. Did Izzy get the urge to run through them? I think I may have!


    1. Alas I wouldn’t let Izzy run through the garlic. it She had to stay to the path. it was too beautiful to disturb I felt.

  7. Lovely photos! There’s something so peaceful about the woods. Especially once all the flowers are out
